Did you miss her?

As if summoned by “Saturday Night Live,”Kellyanne Conway is back in the spotlight. The counselor to President Donald Trump was caught up in a viral moment when Anderson Cooper let slip an exasperated eye roll in response to one of Conway’s answers while discussing Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” Tuesday evening.

Conway seized the moment on Thursday morning’s “Fox & Friends,” and came with a monologue prepared to explain why, to her, Cooper’s actions were sexist.

“[Cooper] had me sit through a bunch of tapes showing then candidate Trump commending Jim Comey about Hillary Clinton’s emails, talking about him etc. And the fact is that they showed all these clips and it showed candidate Trump in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I said ‘Hey, thanks for the trip down memory lane and talked about winning Michigan,’ and then he rolled his eyes,” Conway told Fox and Friends. “Let me tell you something, Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as an excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago. I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that. Could you imagine having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton or a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not.”

Oh, and the “sexist” eye roll is here:
